Is Buying and Selling Real Estate an Emotion-Based Experience or Strictly a Financial Investment?
For years we have heard phrases like âdonât get attached to this house, itâs just businessâ orÂ âdonât make decisions based on your emotionsâ. And this may be sage advice, especially in todayâs HOT and competitive Colorado market.Â As a mortgage lender, I help my clients plan their financial future as it will develop within a realÂ estate investment. We discuss financing options available as well as short and long termÂ strategy based on specific goals and desires. Itâs all about building strategic wealth. I like toÂ send clients out well informed and well prepared … to make the best NON-Emotional financial decisions possible.Â Following in that same lead, my Realtor partners spend a good deal of time informing ourÂ clients that they *might not* get their offer accepted on the first house they love, or theÂ second house, or even the third house. Colorado real estate is all about persistence. And it is allÂ about making decisions based on strategy.
All of this being said, I believe it wise, in our world today, to support the emotional aspect ofÂ Real Estate as well. Yes we are selling real estate, yes we are dealing in large sums of money,Â but at the end of the day, we are still helping people find their home-sweet-home. A placeÂ where they will build memories with their loved ones. A place where they will start newÂ traditions. A place where they will fill their hearts with love.
